Screen Sharing - Some Application Windows Are Not Listed As Shareable Options


  • This issue applies to Windows and Mac users who join Highfive meetings using the Highfive desktop application or Chrome in-browser experience. 
  • When using Highfive to share a specific application window, some windows are not visible and cannot be shared. 
  • This issue does not impact all applications. Known apps that we've seen this occur on include apps hard-coded to the operating system, such as:
    • Calculator
    • Photos
    • Edge
    • OneNote


  1. Share your entire screen instead of only the application window. 
  2. We will inform you once this is fixed or improved via the Highfive Release Notes. You can subscribe to email updates here:
